Description of key information

The biodegradation of MCS-1562 ( 2-ethylhexyl 7-oxabicyclo[4.1.0]heptane-3-carboxylate) was evaluated following a test method similar to OECD 301C "Ready Biodegradability: Modified MITI TEST (I)", July 17, 1992. The test results showed the average percent biodegradation determined by BOD measurements to be 89%, while the percent biodegradation calculated using GC (gas chromatography) was 100%. The test substance is readily biodegradable based on the % biodegradation for the treatment vessels (test material plus activated sludge) compared to the control vessels (reference substance plus activated sludge.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable
